Prof. Liner joined the faculty of Geosciences at the University of Arkansas in August 2012 as the Maurice F. Storm Professor of Petroleum Geology. He earned a BS in Geology (U. Arkansas, 1978), MS. in Geophysics (U. Tulsa, 1980), and PhD in Geophysics (Colo. School of Mines, Center for Wave Phenomena, 1989). He has 11 years industrial experience in exploration (Conoco) and geophysical research (Western Geo, Fairfield, Saudi Aramco). From 1990-2004 Liner was a faculty member in Geosciences at The University of Tulsa. In January 2008 he joined the faculty of the University of Houston Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences as Professor and Associate Director of the Allied Geophysical Labs industrial consortium. In fall 2011 he was named Department Associate Chair and Interim Chair in spring 2012. Prof. Liner’s research interests include Petroleum reservoir characterization and monitoring, CO2 sequestration geophysics, advanced seismic interpretation methods, seismic data analysis and processing, near surface, anisotropy, and seismic wave propagation. He has served as Editor of Geophysics (1999-2001), authored many technical papers, scientific meeting abstracts, The Leading Edge column Seismos (since 1992), and the text book Elements of 3D Seismology now in 2nd edition. Liner is a member of SEG, AAPG, AGU, and the European Academy of Sciences.
